Quatech Parallel PCMCIA Card with security dongles
Here is a list of security dongles that have been tested with the
Quatech Parallel PCMCIA cards. It is rare for these suggestions to not
work, so try them, and if they dont work, contact either the
manufacturer of the dongle, Quatech, or our support team.
Rainbow Security Dongle
Follow the directions below to configure the Sentinel System Driver
to work with a SPP-100 parallel PCMCIA card under Windows 2000 and XP.
The Sentinel System Driver 5.41 can be configured to work with the
SPP-100. I usually suggest for the customer to download the current
drivers for the dongle especially customers using XP. These can be
located at SafeNet-inc.com.
1. From the Control Panel, double-click the System icon to open
the System Properties page.
2. Click the Hardware tab and then the Device Manager button to open
the Device Manager.
3. Click the + sign next to Ports (COM & LPT) to expand the tree.
4. Double-click on SPP-100 to open the property page.
5. Click on the Resources tab to see the resources used by the adapter.
The value listed next to the I/O range will be the bus address the
Sentinel software will be looking for, so be certain to write this
6. Sentinel Software Configuration

7. Click the Add button to close the dialog and then open the File menu
and choose Exit to close the Sentinel System Driver Configuration
8. The Sentinel System Driver should now be configured to use the
Quatech Parallel PCMCIA card.
Aladdin or Hasp dongles
This information was provided by the Aladdin/Hasp support team. This
seems to work sometimes but there is contact information from the
Aladdin/Hasp support. for additional help:
The Hasp/Aladdin dongle has a configuration utility that needs to be
told what base address the parallel port is installed at.
1. Set the port to LPT1 with a manual I/O address range of 478 -
47F (automatic setting chooses FFF8 - FFFF).
2. Unzip and extract the hinstall.exe and the haspds_windows.dll files
to the same folder.
Remove the previous version of the HASP Device Driver by doing the

Metrowerks Code Warrior/OCDemon Wiggler
Metrowerks uses a Command Converter Server which is part of the
CodeWarrior software. The CCS usually appears in the icon window next
to the time once the OCDemon Wiggler is tried. Double click on the icon
for the CCS. This will open a window that looks and acts like a command
prompt. The following commands need to be entered.
config cc lpt:0xFFF0 (where 0xFFF0 is the address of the parallel
These commands should point the CCS to the correct parallel port,
save the configuration for later use, and allow use
The latest DK2 driver installation (v6.08.0.154) can be found here,
it includes support for Windows XP :
I would recommend using LPT address of $378,$278 or $3bc.
Depending on how the PCMCIA device implements its driver the DESkey
drivers may not be able to find the LPT port, you can hard code the
address the DK2 to be searched by adding it as a DWORD registry value
named ‘LPTPort’ in
Keylok and Husqvarna Viking Security Dongles
Keylok and the Husqvarna Viking security dongles are not compatible
with the Quatech Parallel PCMCIA. Both manufacturer’s say that their
dongles will not work with a USB or PCMICA parallel port.
